Aside from the emotional torment that stress can bestow upon our psyche, it can take an un-measurable toll on our bodies, and in fact cause illness. Our bodies are designed to react to stress in many of the same ways that it would if it were being physically threatened or under attack. We all have a fight or flight mechanism, which cannot tell the difference between an emotionally stressful situation caused by “Life” or an actual life-threatening one. This fight or flight mechanism when activated releases adrenaline and cortisol into the blood stream. The adrenaline increases blood pressure and boosts energy supplies while the cortisol releases a surge of glucose into the bloodstream. Elevated cortisol over a long period of time can deplete your adrenal glands, cause headaches, muscle aches, insomnia, weight gain and even autoimmune diseases and cancer. Stress has been found to contribute to most of our modern day diseases, so, what can you do about it? Take steps to minimize or reduce stress by meditating, walking, yoga, eating healthier foods and incorporating essential oils into your daily routine. Essential oils are a very popular and effective way to reduce stress, anxiety and depression and offer a natural and healthier alternative to pharmaceutical substances.
